It's the fateful finale of Dark Horse's adaptation of Robert E. Howard's classic Conan story, "The God in the Bowl!" A Hyborean, locked-room murder mystery explodes in horror and death, as Conan comes face-to-face with the inhuman machinations of the dread sorcerer Thoth-amon. Plus, threads build that will embroil Conan in a continent-spanning conflict that will change the direction of his life forever.

    Cary Nord is called upon to build a sense of foreboding as the issue spends a fair bit of time selling the idea that there is something evil lurking in the temple, and the panicked expression of the little man does a great job of reinforcing this notion. The art also does a pretty effective job of conveying Conan's growing annoyance, as one could almost see the steam exploding out of his ears when his former employer decided to let Conan burn at the stake rather than reveal he had hired him. The art also does its usual spectacular job capturing the sheer intensity of Conan's attacks from the opening beheading scene to the wince inducing panel where Conan destroys a guard's jawbone with his foot. I will say that I wasn't overly impressed by the big monster that's offered up in the final pages though, as it's a rather generic design, and didn't strike me as being visually worth the build up.
